(1) If the operator, superintendent, or mine manager of any mine fails to furnish
to the commissioner any map required by KRS 352.450 and 352.480, the commissioner may cause a correct survey and map of the mine or extensions thereof
to be made at the expense of the owner, lessee, or operator of the mine, and the cost
of the map shall be recoverable from the owner, lessee, or operator in the same manner
as debts are recoverable by law.
(2) If at any time the commissioner has reason to believe that any map furnished
under KRS 352.450 and 352.480 is materially incorrect, so that it will not serve the purpose for which it was intended,
he may have a survey and map made or corrected, and the expense of making the survey,
map, or correction shall be paid by the owner, lessee, or operator of the mine, or
recovered in the same manner as debts are recoverable by law; but if the map furnished
by the operator or superintendent is found to be correct, the expense of the survey
and drafting of the map shall be paid by the Commonwealth.
